(and in time for Bloggers' Quilt Festival!)
Here is my finished Urban Lattice Quilt, made from the Urban Lattice Quilt Along over at Cara's. (For previous entries on the process of making this quilt, including directions for making the block without paper piecing, please see this link).
I've decided to rename it "Facets."
The weather was not being cooperative today, but I did finally convince the hubs (home unexpectedly due to unseasonable rain) to try to hold my quilt for me so I could get a picture.
He compared it to holding a heavy flag.
I really wanted a cool shot with the flooded rice fields in the background...
I think I got a better shot of his feet... and you can see the sort-of even-ish straight lines for quilting.
In this picture, the wind is holding it up against an old dog kennel we no longer use.
I'm pretty thrilled it's finished though. With the first trimester, working three days/week, and a busy little man, it took longer than I hoped... but now it's all done (except for the wash). But I have loved this quilt from concept, to completion.
I made it for my husband, though I have a feeling Steiger's big boy quilt won't be done in time, so he'll probably get to borrow this one for a "biddle bit." Besides, when I had it laying on the floor, and he had just got up from his nap, he explained "Dat's pretty."
The fabrics are some various blenders, Moda Bella solids in Medium Gray, Ivory, and White, Kona solids in Ash, Stone, and Bone (I think), and Kona Charcoal and Quilter's Linen in Black for the Lattice and Binding.
For the back, I used Bella Gray, some Robert Kaufman Metro Living Circles, and some of the Pastry line Voile from Anna Maria.
(Only 8 days left of work for me! Steiger's face captures well how I feel about that!)
